    I'm pretty certain that Deus Ex doesn't get a "nice 675 dicount", but a 67% discount.

    Anyway, I wanted to buy the Rimworld, as it looks really interesting, so I hope it will get discounted this time.

    sale quality gets worse and worse. Looks like Valve just automized it.

    Most in my wishlist only getting 10-25% discount. Hoped to get most of them before VAT introduction on January 1st 2017. AAA titles are still way too expensive. I did acquired Deus Ex, but it's 428 ***8381; here, that is equivalent to $40 in US. Still Squire Enix is much better than Bethesda, EA, Ubi Soft and Take 2 on pricing policy. They set $60 to $20 here, unlike $30 all others. $60 equivalent is $10 here.

    It has.

    I doubt it's a DDoS tho, cuz we dropped out all of sudden without any lag before that.

    Been down for almost two hours now. Absolutely typical. I wish I could say I was surprised but I'm not Steam Sales go hand in hand with sluggish server response, slow downloads and Steam itself failing to load in my experience.

    These games were popular, but they don't sell so well anymore especially DeusEx Mankind and Doom 2016 which both are "Denuvo" protected and successfully cracked from "CPY" . The point is that we need special offers on uncracked new "Denuvo" protected games like Watch Dogs 2 for example

    I wouldn't buy a Denuvo-protected game even if it cost $1.

    No, thank you. You can keep it.
